Add the wine and orange juice and simmer on medium heat till most of the liquid has evaporated and chicken is cooked through.  If the chicken is still undercooked, add a little bit of water or chicken stock and continue simmering till chicken is cooked through.

Serve hot with butter noodles or crusty bread !
